Upcoming Events

There is Sweet Music

As part of the Brandenburg Choral Festival of London, The Fisher Consort joins forces with I Dodici for an evening of choral favourites, featuring music by Stanford, Nystedt and Elgar. The music of Saturday’s concert spans nearly one hundred years, from Elgar’s There is Sweet Music to Knut Nystedt’s arrangement of Bach’s funeral song Komm, süßer Tod (Come, sweet death). The concert begins with one of Stanford’s lesser known works, God and the Universe, followed by Poulenc’s Messe en sol majeur (Mass in G major), and ends with Howells’ famous and challenging Take Him Earth for Cherishing.

Programme

God and the Universe – Stanford

Mass in G – Poulenc

Immortal Bach – Nystedt
